A mother’s heart painted with fear of the unknown
Where you don’t deserve to hurt you say
Like the man in the Bible who let go of his son
He journeyed the road up the treacherous mountain
With questions of why piercing the heart with blades of steel
Why must you walk this road alone fearful of death and dying
Who would leave a child on the table of sacrifice?
Will this suffering ever end?
What will happen if he does not return?
How can a mother let go with the future so unknown?
Anguished love rips your soul in a thousand pieces.
Where can a mother find the courage for the moment
Except in the arms of a loving Father above
He knew the pain you would feel.
But you still ask how could this be your perfect plan?
Your road is rocky and pain pricks your feet and heart
You cried the tears alone bending at the knee
Until faith arose that your child so sweet
Will come out all right.
You rise before dawn to face the fear unknown
And face another day of letting go
You fill your soul with comfort of the One who knows your name
Fear of what the future holds foremost on you mind
Then you press on letting go of the child of your heart
And our Father’s love surrounds you.
He will make a way where there seems no way
You are safe to let go for he will return to you.
All fear is gone and peace has come
Look and see who carried you through the storm.
Now watch how God works his plan
You are in the palm of his hand.
